About This Activity

Escape the summer city heat and head for the mountains! Join us at Rocky Gap State Park on July 13, 2014 for the 11th annual XTERRA EX2 Off-Road Triathlon and Duathlon. With its clear lake, fantastic amenities, and challenging trail network, Rocky Gap State Park is the perfect venue for this nationally recognized point series race.

Course

The triathlon course starts with a two lap swim in warm clear waters of a mountain lake and the duathlon starts with a three mile semi-technical trail run. All racers then head out to complete two laps of a mountain bike course that includes lakeside single-track, wide fire roads, smooth grassy sections, a few 'rock gardens', and the challenging climb of 'Evitt's Revenge'. After the mountain biking, racers transition to a 5 mile run that has rooty trails, smooth open flats, and one big climb.
